Good News For January 10, 2021 | Evenings With Emmalyn: Episode 11

Here’s your weekly roundup of positive news from around New England!

In Norwood, one little girl’s act of kindness brought big smiles to the faces of first responders at Norwood Police & Fire. Jaylynn, daughter of the owners of Keegan’s Jewelers in Norwood, came up with a unique idea to both support local business and say thank you to those working on the front lines during trying times. She decided to make a “give back board” that featured gift cards for each of the officers and firefighters to try out a new restaurant and get a cup of coffee free of charge. Not even going to lie and tell you these are “allergies”, these are COVID times and honestly I’m just tearing up over here at her thoughtfulness and in looking at pictures of the first responders so clearly smiling under their masks!

On Martha’s Vineyard, one man is making some pretty big waves in the non-profit sector by giving back through every sale he makes. The owner of Feiner Real Estate and Chairman of the Chilmark Housing Community, Jim Feiner has had the unique perspective of being able to see both wealth and need on the small island. This experience, he says, is what inspired him to find a way to incentivize buyers to become what he calls “impact investors” by offering each buyer that comes to him the opportunity to donate 10% of his commission to the island charity of their choice.
